Matt Reeves continue to say all the right things when he caused DC fanboys to all agree with his statements regarding a desire to do a noir, detective-driven version of The Dark Knight. Fandango asked if he had plans for a Batman trilogy starring Ben Affleck. Reeves admitted he’s thought about it but he doesn’t want to put the horse before the carriage.
“I have ideas about an arc, but really, the important thing is just to start… you have to start with one. You know, you have to start with a story that begins something.“
Reeves is out promoting War for the Planet of the Apes so he brought the discussion back to his current film.
“And when [screenwriter] Mark [Bomback] and I began [Dawn of the Planet of the Apes], we knew what our goals were, but we didn’t know how we were gonna get there, and I would say that more relates to the way that I see a Batman story, is a kind of ambition for a series of stories, but really the most important thing is gonna be to tell a vital first story.”
The Batman currently doesn’t have a release doesn’t have a release date but hopefully, we can expect something new in San Diego this month at Comic-Con.
